Ranking Member Schiff Statement on Disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi

Washington, October 10, 2018

Washington, DC – Today, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the Ranking Member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, released the following statement: 

“The United States must continue to demand answers from the Saudis about the disappearance and potential assassination of Jamal Khashoggi, a Saudi journalist and U.S. resident.  President Trump’s tepid statements of concern do not begin to match the gravity of the situation.

“After our request, the Committee received a preliminary briefing on the disappearance of Khashoggi and we await a more comprehensive analysis of these events. If the horrific allegations of what occurred are accurate, this episode must dramatically recast the U.S.-Saudi relationship.”
